We, sans kids, were back in Sweden for a quick weekend in Göteborg at the beginning of fall break. As we were kid-free, we tried to walk around some areas we had not spent much time in before (although we did end up going back to Eriksberg – but this time we spent more than 20 minutes there and actually took a ferry boat across the Götaälv from Göteborgs Hamn to Lindholmen, the area north of Eriksberg) and spent hours wandering around various neighborhoods. We certainly took advantage of the spring-like weather, which was a nice surprise. Göteborg has a thriving street art presence and that is reflected in some of the pictures here.

Many of the closed “garage” doors were festooned with interesting art

I can’t help taking pictures of cranes. Especially bright orange ones.

As a bird lover, I had to enjoy this particular corner in Majorna
